Breakfast Time


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Frank Bough and Selina Scott present the programme direct from Washington where, overnight, Americans will learn who will be in the White House for the next four years. Joining them is Breakfast Time's man in America, Bob Friend , who'll be following the supporters of the two Presidential candidates as they gather, in party mood, to await the outcome of the election. Bob also gives a flavour of American life and lifestyle.
Harold Evans , former Editor of the Sunday Times and The Times, is among the guests in Washington, and Shadow Foreign Secretary The Rt Hon Denis Healey , MP, comments from the London studio.
News from London with Debbie Rix.
Also from America this morning: the US music scene, and a rundown of the American television favourites of today that could be on your screens next year.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
